Q: I'm being accused of texting a person off of a texting app and it's not me the cops have been here three times.
I keep telling them to trace the call but all three times they keep saying that if it happens again they are going to arrest me, but it's not me..... what can I do? The person texting them is using my name but it truly isn't me.
A: This is becoming a common problem with these third party apps. Just make sure you keep or screenshot your call logs. If the police go the extra mile they can subpoena IP logs to see where the initiating calls are coming from but they typically not do that unless it is a serious case.
A: You need a lawyer and a forensic computer examiner.
